Are they the same pickups as used in the Thunderbird? I like the ceramics in my SS Thunderbird, good clean lows, but not as deep and clear as the Alumitones. My luthier described the sound as big, he hadn't seen any bass Alumitones before just the guitar ones.
My grandson isn't really an Elf, he just plays one in videos.
